Nara Park

We continue to speak about deer and in this post, we present you Nara Park. Firstable, you can access the park from Kintetsu or JR Nara stations. Kintetsu Nara, a 10 minute walk, is closer but if you have the JR pass, JR Nara, a 20 minute walk, is also great. And so, you go out your station, you go straight and here it is!

 The park is 660 hectares wide, it was founded in 1880 and Nara Prefecture is in charge. Inside, you have Kofukuji and Todaiji temples, the great shrine Kasuga Taisha, the national museum and the mounts nearby, like the mount Wakakusa (a lot of blog posts to come!)… And of course, the 1400 deer which go here and there.

Deer do not know of course the park’s limits. You can also find them all around, like on the Prefectoral Government Office’s grass, nearby.

  3. Mount Wakakusa

It is great to have a walk inside, moreover if you are well accompanied by me, Hehe! For the most courageous, we can climb the Mount Wakakusa, 342 metres, it can be bad! I am wainting for you.

Visite Guidée d'un Jour en Montagne Japonaise : Ikoma, Osaka

Nara
8 hours

Quand un touriste visite le Kansai, il favorise les villes importantes comme Osaka ou Kyoto. Au milieu du Kansai, le mont Ikoma n’est malheureusement pas très connu. C’est un coin paisible à 20 minutes de train d’Osaka et vaut le coup de s’y arrêter au moins un jour. Je suis guide-interprète certifié du département de Nara. Allons découvrir cette montagne dans ce circuit. Vous pouvez vous attendre à de la nature, à de l’urbanisme plutôt rétro, de l’histoire... et à de l’attraction !
